With the COVID-19 vaccine being a hot topic for the last year and a half, it’s only natural that people are interested in what certain public persons think about it.
Back in 2020, while the vaccine was still undergoing trials, Lewis shared a meme that seemed to suggest he believed Microsoft founder Bill Gates’ intentions were not completely genuine.
The billionaire has been very interested in the COVID-19 vaccine, and his foundation invested in its development. This led to several conspiracy theories that suggested there was some nefarious reason behind it.
At the time on his Instagram account Lewis shared a video clip of Bill Gates being questioned about the side-effects of the vaccine with the caption “I remember when I told my first lie”.

This led to people believing Lewis was also doubting the vaccine. However, Lewis later dismissed any such suggestions.
“I’ve noticed some comments on my earlier post around the coronavirus vaccine, and want to clarify my thoughts on it, as I understand why they might have been misinterpreted,” Lewis wrote on Instagram.
“Firstly, I hadn’t actually seen the comment attached so that is totally my fault and I have a lot of respect for the charity work Bill Gates does.
“I also want to be clear that I’m not against a vaccine and no doubt it will be important in the fight against coronavirus, and I’m hopeful for its development to help save lives,” concluded the seven-time champion.
